Are you planning on visiting Walt Disney World in August? Here is everything you need to know about that time of the year:

I would plan a trip for the last week of August.
The average temperature throughout the month is between 91 – 92 degrees F. The average rainfall is 6w inches. Pack light clothing and bring your bathing suit and ponchos!
August is considered hurricane season. Be prepared by reading this article on traveling to Walt Disney World during hurricane season.
